Along the way you can admire the long piceno-fermana beach by going along a comfortable cycle path adjacent to seaside resorts. Glimpses of villages will accompany the easy bicycle ride. The aim of the route is to be able to visit places where we could hardly get to by car, but above all with the satisfaction of having overcome the climb and having ridden several miles to reach the destination

Once through the town of Amandola you turn for Montefortino and again you come to a slight ascent, at the crossroad you turn towards the Shrine of our Lady of Ambro where there will be a brief stop for refreshments. For those who are tired, you can climb aboard the support-van and follow the more daring group who will set off again towards Comunanza and once the town has been reached we will turn towards Ceresola. Here you will face a challenging climb, but not big slope, of about 3 km, to then face a long and technical descent to reconnect to us to the provincial road that will bring us back to Servigliano.
